Re: Can good God do evil?

What is my question is however something else. I am asking whether good God can do evil. Okay, but first, you are going to have to provide us with an irrefutable example of a “good” God, because you certainly cannot use the Catholic God. I don't recall good God. Perhaps others can help it. Oh come ...

Re: Can good God do evil?

I agree with all you stated. If you agree with all that I stated about the Catholic depiction of God, then can you not understand the problem with your thread title? The title of this thread is about good God which includes the Catholic God too. No, bahman, you specifically stated earlier that the ...

I agree with all you stated. If you agree with all that I stated about the Catholic depiction of God, then can you not understand the problem with your thread title? I mean, if your thread title is in reference to the Catholic God, and the Catholic God is apparently going to torture billions of def...

Re: Kant

If 'noumenon' means thing-in-itself, then all human experiences are noumena (but our 'senses' / 'perceptions' don't necessarily come into play). To reference Wiki again: The thing-in-itself (German: Ding an sich) is a concept introduced by Immanuel Kant. Things-in-themselves would be objects as the...

Re: Kant

The noumenon is a posited object or event that exists independently of human sense and/or perception. Okay, but then the noumenon is not a thing-in-itself. It's a thing-in-itself beyond human perception. And the phenomenon is a thing-in-itself, or the appearance of a thing-in-itself, accessible to ...

Re: Kant

According to Wiki: The noumenon is a posited object or event that exists independently of human sense and/or perception. The term noumenon is generally used when contrasted with, or in relation to, the term phenomenon, which refers to anything that can be apprehended by or is an object of the senses...

Re: Can good God do evil?

God which I am aiming is the Catholic God... If such is the case, then shouldn’t the title of your thread be: Can the Catholic God do evil? God which I am aiming is the Catholic God who is the creator and goodness, buy [sic] goodness I mean that God always does good. Do you mean to frame it as a Go...

Re: There is no emergence

...Alexa is as unaware of meaning as my ratchet screwdriver. Exactly. There is absolutely nothing present within the computer processes (software) called “Alexa” that is capable of being “aware” of anything. Indeed, when someone speaks to Alexa and it responds by performing a task (such as turning ...

Re: Nondualism is not a form of Monism

Or at least this is what I've been told. So what makes this 'nondualism' not a form of Monism as categorised in Philosophy? The problem with nondualism is not that it may be true at some foundational level,... (I’m thinking of Spinoza’s oneness substance) ...but that those who promote it (such as t...

Re: There is no emergence

Now, granted, it may not be a formally presented process that some preeminent neurologist might sign-off on, but surely we can all agree that at least what “appears” to be going on between brains and consciousness is something that the word “emergence” seems to fittingly describe. Yes? No? Maybe? I...
